I worked at Cogent Communications full-time for more than a year

ProsIn a year...the only one is that if your manager likes you, you will go far. Embrace the "group think" mentality and your comp will soar.

ConsPeople are just a commodity at Cogent in this job market. The impression is that, either do what you are told, or there is someone waiting to fill your shoes.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat current employees well by acknowledging service. Provide opportunities for continuting ed outside of the 'sales' channel, regardless of the CW.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
